My first year of festivids and I had a great time. This was made for Chat Noir and honestly I couldn't pass up an opportunity to vid this movie.

Beat Control by AbsoluteDestiny

Ohana.

If you've not seen this movie, you should. It's about the finest contribution to the world that the Disney animation studio has put to film. That's really all there is to say about it. If you have seen the movie, you'll know what it means to want to vid it.

I spent a lot of time looking for the perfect song for Lilo & Stitch. Like, much more time than I spent actually making this vid which happened over a couple of days. This movie has so many superb narratives, rich for revealing and developing, that I wanted to cover them all. Ultimately, the perfect song did not exist. Thankfully a damn good and much more feasible vidsong arrived thanks to the assistance of [personal profile] sweetestdrain. With song picked, the vid just made sense.

Hope you like.

Lyrics:

Let the beat control you
Let the beat control you
Let the beat control you
Let the beat control you

All these people talking 'bout you now
They don't make no difference, no
We always have the rhythm here
In our blood and in our souls
So let the beat control you now
There's nothing here to care about
Just you and me, let'sbreak it down
So follow me, I'll show you how

All these people talking 'bout you now
They don't make no difference, no
We always have the rhythm here
In our blood and in our souls
So let the beat control you now
There's nothing here to care about
Just you and me, let'sbreak it down
So follow me, I'll show you how

The beat
The beat
The beat
The beat
The beat
The beat
The beat
The beat

Let that beat control your body
You and me, there's no one watching
Come on, we can rock this party
All night long, believe me


Let that beat control your body
You and me, there's no one watching
Come on, we can rock this party
All night long, believe me

There is nothing stopping you
There is nothing stopping me
So let that beat control your body, baby

There is nothing stopping you
There is nothing stopping me
So let that beat control your body, baby

All these people talking 'bout you now
They don't make no difference, no
We always have the rhythm here
In our blood and in our souls
So let the beat control you now
There's nothing here to care about
Just you and me, let'sbreak it down
So follow me, I'll show you how

All the people gather round now
All the peoplebreak it down now

There is nothing stopping you
There is nothing stopping me
So let that beat control your body, baby

There is nothing stopping you
There is nothing stopping me
So let that beat control your body, baby

All the people gather round now
(So let that beat control your body. baby)
All the peoplebreak it down now
(So let that beat control your body, baby)

The beat
The beat
The beat
The beat

It's so wonderful. ♥ You hit all the notes you were trying for, too. I love how the sadness at the start leads gradually into the love and joy spreading out in all directions. Just perfect.

Can't wait to see the movie again now!

I don't even understand how this song (so simple!) is so perfect for this vid, but it absolutely is! This is beautiful.

JOY!

I loved the way the ocean came in with that particular rhythm line, your use of the book, and the perfect moments you chose to use actual dance clips. Thank you, that made me happy!

Okay, so I feel kind of silly admitting this, but I actually cried watching this. Blame the alcohol or living a continent away from my family, but that was really wonderful.

Oh, man, this is everything I loved about Lilo and Stitch. It was so perfect and encapsulated the anger and helplessness and Ohana.
